Anthony and Shauna are Engaged!~ Proposal and Engagement Photography~ Littleton, CO
I was so excited for this session…..a Proposal!! At 1st I had visions of myself all “Sherlock holmes” style…but then I realized that wasn’t going to work…but I did get to be sneaky and help with this proposal plan– and it was a blast!
The night started at The Melting Pot in Littleton…where I waited int he Bar area for my “cue”! I then followed the server to the table (he had the ring on a beautifully decorated plate)– and snapped away! I really enjoyed this from a technical point of view because it was a challenge. It was extremely dark in there– with only some candlelight, Christmas lights, and the glow from the multi-colored water/bubble wall! I went to it knowing that I would not even touch my flash– as I knew that would completely kill the ambiance…and totally distract what was going on! I really like the emotion and how the Dinner photos came out– it really reflects what it was like in there! Learned a few new things as well– always what I want going home from a session.
After the dinner– we set out to the beautifully decorated streets of downtown Littleton for some fun Engagement portraits! I really had fun with these as well– for the most part becasue it was night! I don’t usually get the chance to shoot outdoors at night time– so it was another fun challenge! I used an off-camera flash with a gel and grid to give it more of a “spot light”– and not light up the whole picture. I am in love with some of these…….I had such beautiful models!!
We finally (as the snow started to fall!) headed over to Merle’s restaurant to meet up with their Family! I was invited to stay and hangout with them– how sweet!! I love some of the “chatting” photos— they were having a such a great time!
Congrats to you both! you are a beautiful couple– thank you for allowing me to be part of your day!
